Review: U.S. Money Reserve Website and Why Gold is Still Important

Recent news from Greece is bad, but the price of gold has come of recent highs of $1900 per troy ounce. This perspective from Mike Marlow offers some thoughts on this issue.

In reviewing the website U.S. Money Reserve it is interesting to note that there has probably never been a more opportune time to invest in and purchase gold. It is not even an issue of if one should invest in gold anymore, but rather an issue of how much to invest and how quickly to invest in this very important storage of value medium. The ability to store and preserve wealth is indeed one of the most critical elements of gold and precious metal investing.

Federal Reserve: Hardly Reserved

In a world where the Federal Reserve has gone literally haywire, by the unconstrained printing of money with the net effect being unfettered runaway inflation. This has a direct and measurable effect on the value of money. The more the Federal Reserve prints money the less that your money is worth, it is really that simple.

In responding appropriately any investor must find protective measures to insulate their wealth from this reckless kind of policy. U.S. Money Reserve is nicely organized and is easy to navigate when buying precious metals online. The real time ticker at the top of the page offers up to the minute gold and silver prices, this is convenient with all the recent fluctuations in gold and silver prices.

Buy the Dips: Value Investing

While these fluctuations may be a little unsettling, In truth, one would be well advised to just continue to buy on the dips in price. The reason for this is basic and simple. It is understood knowledge that the price of both gold and silver has be artificially and intentionally manipulated and held at a far lower price than normal market conditions would support. This is being done in large part to mask the fact that the US dollar is rapidly decreasing in value.

In other words, if gold were allowed to rise to its true market value it would in effect reveal the true worth of the dollar. This is being prevented from happening because it would then threaten the status of the US dollar as the world’s reserve currency. This is relevant to the precious metal investor because having this knowledge and understanding it makes the decision to regularly invest in gold and silver a rather easy one.

True Market Value

Once the artificial manipulation of precious metals ends, and it will as a law of economics, then the true market value of gold and silver will be reveled. This value will likely be many multiples of the current market value of precious metals. Further analysis of this issue shows that to an even greater degree, silver is more rare and valuable than gold.

All that Glistens: Silver

The historic gold/silver ratio shows that silver is perhaps one of the best investments one can possibly make today. Silver is unique in that it has real and tangible industrial uses. U.S. Money Reserve is a perfect site to track and monitor the change in precious metals prices. What makes it even better is that the site makes it easy to make a gold or silver purchase.

Surival Is the Name of the Game

In the coming days, there will likely be a substantially big paradigm shift in terms of money, finance and the global economy. This shift is unavoidable and will happen according to economic law and laws of the universe in general. A faulty and nonfunctional system will always eventually cease to exist, and equilibrium will eventually return. As a wise investor, looking ahead into the future, gold and silver are not an investment strategy, but rather a survival strategy.

Weekend Trips Around the North East Coast

May 2008 has been a remarkably cool month or so with only a little rain in the north of the Island. It produces wonderful weather occasionally, and yesterday was one of those days! We traveled to Jiou-Fen and The Gold Mining Area nearby. It was remarkably quite and pleasant even when we drove up the mountain roads.


David from Taiwan Guide visited the museum on several trips, taking these pictures and these. He was my inspiration to go, so we left. Unfortunately, we were delayed quite a lot by laziness. Then we

gold mining area

Taken in Keelung on the No. 2 Coastal highway, some kms south of Central Keelung. Of course, we hadn’t intended to be here at all, as we ended up taking the wrong route. To get to the area of the south of Keelung, we took the No. 1 Superhighway, and exited in Keelung City. We then followed the No. 2 all the way to the Jiou-fen exit. We had planned to take the No. 62 Expressway, but hadn’t realized that to get on that, you have to take the No. 3 Superhighway! So irony of ironies, to avoid going into the City Center, you HAVE to drive into the City Center on the No. 3, but you can avoid it. By avoiding the City Center on No. 1, you actually end up going through the City. But then we discoved this nice area on the coast, with impressive rock cliffs, low density of population and right by the sea.



Once you find a place to park you can enter the museum property and walk along this charming roadway which I’m told was used in a movie or tv show that I have never seen: City of Sadness.




This is the little Gold Nugget Store with real nuggets in the window. Of course, they’re not worth a lot! Each nugget has a little speckle of gold in it! Great souvenirs~!




By then, the Museum was closed so we headed out… Next time we’ll leave earlier, make a more detailed stopover and take a bunch more pictures!
